Fellow Alumni: 

I am sure it is with regret for the Alumni 
to Ic.ini that Geary Eppley, '1.8. Athletic 
Director and Dean of Men at the Univer 
sity, lias given up his activities at College 
Park and entered the service of the United 
States Army as Major of Cavalry. He is 
now stationed at Fort Meade. Md., where 
he will be officer in charge of recreation. 

This is the second time Geary Eppley, 
known as "Big Swede," has left the Uni- 
versity to serve his country in time of 
emergency. It was in 1917 that "Swede'' 
left the University as a student to enter the 
army for the duration of the World War. 
After his first career in the army, serving 
as Firs! Lieutenant of Cavalry, "Suede" 
re-entered the University, where he gradu 
ated in 1920. Following graduation he took 
an advanced course in Agronomy, after 
which he became assistant Agronomist of 
his alma mater. For man; years "Swede" 
has been coach of track and assistant coach 
of football. In l l )ss he was appointed Hi 
rector of Athletics and later Dean of Men, 
positions he was most admirably qualified 

to fill. 

While a student at the University 
"Swede" was an outstanding participant in 
athletics and was very active m all student 
activities. \s a football playei he ranks 
among Man land's great ends. With 
"Swede's" personality, disposition and 
training we feel sine he will go f.u in the

Our Maryland 

Spanish, French, Dutch, and English explorers early touched the terri- 
tory now known as Maryland, but it was not until March 25, 1634, that the 
State named in honor of the Queen, Henrietta Maria, had its first perma- 
nent settlement. Prior to the first settlement, a trading post had been estab- 
lished at Kent Island by William Claiborne, and some have given Claiborne 
credit for establishing the first settlement. However, it was not until the 
charter was granted by Charles I to Sir George Calvert, first Lord Balti- 
more, and to his son, Cecil, that Maryland was colonized and established 
as an entity of territory and government. 

Freedom of thought and of individual action was stressed from the very 
beginning of the settlement. The first religious toleration act passed on 
American soil became a law in Maryland in 1649. In keeping with the 
thought of freedom for all and friendly relations among all, Maryland 
had little difficulty with the Indians and probably was the only colony 
in which all lands acquired from the Indians were formally purchased 

Maryland's first government was proprietary. This continued until 1691, 
when a royal provincial government was established. In 1715 the proprie- 
torship was restored to the fourth Lord Baltimore, and this form of govern- 
ment continued in the Calvert family until the Revolution. A long dispute 
between the Calvert and Penn families over the boundaries of their respec- 
tive provinces resulted in the running of the Mason and Dixon Line in 1767. 
This line is still the boundary line between Maryland and Pennsylvania. 

The colony participated in the movement for independence and drafted 
a constitution in 1776. All through the war the Maryland Line fought from 
New York to Carolina. Maryland's contribution of regulars to the Con- 
tinental Army was far above its quota, and its troops distinguished them- 
selves throughout the war for gallantry. After the close of the Revolution- 
ary War Maryland played a large part in the Constitutional Convention 
and in the organization of the affairs of the infant nation. John Hanson of 
Charles County was President of the First Continental Congress, and as 
such, was in reality the first President of the country. The far-sightedness 
of the statesmen who represented Maryland in these early conventions was 
shown by the far-reaching stand they took in refusing to ratify the Articles 
of Confederation until assured that the western lands would become the 
property of the Union. It was Maryland that ceded approximately 60 
square miles of its territory to the Federal Government for a scat of govern- 
ment, now the District of Columbia. 

In the Civil War, Maryland's sympathies were generally with the South. 
No other State felt the brunt of the war more keenly than did Maryland 
in relationship to its family life, schisms between families being created 
which exist to this day. The great battle of Sharpsburg was fought on 
Maryland soil. 

The national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner," was written by a 
Maryland man, Francis Scott Key, at the attack on Fort McHenry in 1814. 
The present State Song was written as a war song during the Civil War, 
while the author was in Louisiana. Maryland men have distinguished them- 
selves in the life of the State and Nation, in both peace and war. 

Maryland Day Observed 
On University Campus 

His Excellency, Herbert R. O'Conor, 
'20, LL.B., Governor of Maryland, led 

special exercises commemorating the found- 
ing of Maryland before a capacity crowd 
in the Ritchie Coliseum, on the State Uni- 
versity campus. The exercises were con- 
ducted through the cooperation of the 
State Department of Education and the 
University. More than two thousand high 
school students from Montgomery, Prince 
George's, Anne Arundel and I low ard coun- 
ties attended the exercises. 

Dr. H. C. Byrd, '08, LL.D., President 
of the University, presided at the exercises. 

The Honorable Josh Lee, United States 
Senator from Oklahoma, was the guest 
speaker. Senator Lee, a former University 
professor, seemed to understand just the 
type of talk needed to stimulate the youth 
of Maryland, which he gave in his best 
oratorical manner. Soloist for this occa- 
sion was Miss Dorothy Seegar, soprano, 
who was accompanied by Miss Alice Ap- 

An episode depicting the planting of the 
Cross at St. Mary's City on March 25, 
1634, was presented by the Montgomery 
Blair High School students under the di 
rection of Miss May Louise Wood, '29, 
and Mrs. Verna Metcalf. The Invocation 
for the exercises was sung by the Hyatts 
ville High School Chorus under the direc- 
tion of Miss Louise Jameson. The con- 
cluding episode was the massing of colors, 
both national and State, by the students of 
Bladensburg High School with Mrs. 
Helena Haines directing. 

Preceding the exercises .i Regimental 
Review was presented by the R. O. T. C. 
Unit in honor of Governor O'Conor, Gen- 
eral Reckord. Senator Lee and distin- 
guished guests. Following the review the 
honored guests, faculty and friends re- 
paired to the Rossborough Inn where they 
were entertained in Colonial fashion by 
several co-eds attired in Colonial dress. At 
11 A .M. the procession entered the Ritchie 
Coliseum where five thousand students, 
faculty and friends assembled in honor of 
the founding of our State.

HARRY \\ . MICE, '99, LL.B. 

The Honorable Harry W. Nice, '99, 
LL.B., former Governor of Maryland, died 
recently in Richmond, Va., while en route 
home from a vacation in Florida. The 
Alumni mourn the passing of a great and 
much admired Alumnus who had won the 
fellowship of so many people of Mankind. 

While he was a public servant he gave 
unselfishly of his time and energy in behalf 
of the people of Maryland. He was a true 
and loyal Alumnus, never failing to assist 
his Alma Mater whenever possible. Mr. 
Nice will long be remembered by his fel- 
low Alumni with the highest esteem and 
as one who takes a place among the im- 

Mr. Nice was a most congenial and cor- 
dia*l man whose genuine frankness and 
alert sense of humor often won for him 
the honor as the man of the hour. It was 
during his term of office as Governor of 
Maryland that Mr. Nice, as the guest of 
honor at the annual University Charter 
Day Celebration held in Baltimore, made 
the occasion a memorable one by his wit 
and humor which gave the celebration 
the atmosphere of an "old pal party." 

He was a master at being an after dinner 
speaker and surpassed all others as a toast- 
master. In 1940 Mr. Nice again served his 
Alma Mater by doing the honors for the 
Annual Charter Day occasion and in true

"Sailor of Fortune" 

by George Fogg, '26 

In these days, when it would be consol 
ing to believe that the nation is producing 

new heroes and leaders, it may not be un 
reasonable to take a glance back at one of 
the greatest Maryland lias produced. Capt. 
Joshua Barney, sometimes maligned as a 
pirate, was one of the founders of the 
United States Navy in the Revolutionary 
clays and was the only commander to ac 
quit himself with any honor at the battle 
of Bladensburg. 

Hulbert Footner, a Marylander by adop 

! tion, tells the story in an eas\ reading hi 
ography called Sai/or of Fortune. 

Back in the days when Baltimore eon 

! sistcd of about 25 houses Joshua Barney 

1 succeeded in getting himself apprenticed 
to a sea captain. After several voyages with 

" this Captain Barney received the second 
mate's work and wages, but not the title. 
On a voyage leaving Baltimore in Decem- 

' ber, 1774, the first mate left the ship, the 
Captain died, and Barney, at the age of 
fifteen, was the only officer left. He navi- 

i gated correctly, dealt successfully with dis- 
honest agents and politicians in Italy, and 

1 brought his ship back to Baltimore just as 
the Revolution broke out. 

Baltimore was now becoming quite a 

1 town. A census showed that it had 5,938 
people. Congress met there in 1776 and 
commissioned several naval officers, includ- 
ing Joshua Barncv, and sent a naval ex- 

pedition to convoy some merchant ships 

out of Chesapeake Bay. Tlie voyage was a 

failure and Barney was captured by the 

1 British. He had made a good impression, 
however, and later when he was exchanged 

! by the British for other prisoners of war 
he was quickly provided with a berth in 
the navy. 

The background of jealousy, corruption, 
1 ' and incompetence makes it hard to under- 
stand how the Revolution could have been 

j brought to a successful conclusion, but 

I through it all Barney had the continuous 
confidence of Robert Morris and even Gen- 
eral Washington. He was captured several 

i times, on one of which occasions he was 
. \ taken to England to prison. He escaped by 
dressing himself up as a British officer and 
ordering people about. 

His naval battles showed that he had 
capacity to make small resources in men 


Present At Collese Of 
Commerce Alumni Reunion 

The first annual meeting of the College 
of Commerce Alumni was held in the Uni- 
versity Dining Hall. February 22, headed 
by Klvvood Armstrong, '26, President 
After a very active meeting the group ad- 
journed to attend the basketball and box- 
ing games in the Ritchie Coliseum. 

In addition to the Alumni several mem- 
bers of the faculty joined in a real fellow- 
ship get-together. 

Dr. MacKcnzie Stevens, Dean of the 
College, cooperated in sending out notices 
and spurred enthusiasm for the meeting. 
The College of Commerce is quite young 
when compared with the other Colleges, 
but they arc making an enthusiastic start. 

Several projects are under consideration, 
including assistance to commerce students 
in sclrool. seniors about to graduate and a 

better coordination of \lmiini interest tm 
the welfare of the College. 

Among those present were:

and ships go a long way. Off Ilenlopen 
Point he captured a warship, the General 
A/onk, which carried one-third more guns 
than his own. by a cleverly executed trick 
which made a good many of the enemy's 
guns useless. All of these adventures Mr. 
Footner describes with sure appreciation 
for a really great man and with the hu- 
man detail which makes fine reading. 

After the Revolution things went not so 
well with Mr. Barncv-. He put his savings 

of prize money into one project after an- 
other, all of which went sour. He sold 
goods at great profit to the I latiens. but 
failed to collect because of the slave in-

Every one of the teams were hard hit by 
graduations and losses for other reasons 
and considerable rebuilding will have to be 
done to approach the 1940 records. Last 
Spring the lacrosse team won all its 10 
collegiate contests, losing only to the pow- 
erful Mount Washington Club; the rack- 
eters won 8 of 9 matches for their best 
record in history; the ball team grabbed 11 
of 20 games, and the tracksters captured 3 
of 5 dual meets and shone in national 

Shortage Of Pitchers 

Baseball's toughest problem will be pitch- 
ing, with Max Hunt, husky right-hander, 
as the only regular slabman left from 1940. 
Lefty Earl Springer and Pershing Mon- 
dorff, an ace pair, finished their college 
careers, and Lefty Leon Vannais, a great 
prospect, quit school to go to work. Hugh 
Keller, hard-hitting outfielder, and Adam 
Bengocchca, star of the infield, and Bob 
Burns, catcher, were among the 10 letter 
men lost. Hunt is one of the six letter men 
back, the others being Lcib McDonald, 
Dick Mcllale, and Jim Wharton, infield 
crs; Bill England and Fritz Maisel, out- 

Mearlc DuVall, retarded by injuries last 
year, who'll play first, and Roscoc Whipp, 
infield reserve last year, are others ex 
pected to be regulars. Wharton will be- 
come the catcher, a job he can handle 
ably. Lefty I 1 rank Dwycr, another vet, will

events during the indoor season and who

in a difficult outdoor program.

pitching. England also will share in the 

Bill Fulton, pitcher, Joe Hoopengard- 
ner, inficlder, and Danny Boothc and Irv- 
ing Gordy, outfielders, are the only prom- 
ising recruits from the 1940 freshman 
outfit. Art Woodward, from last year's 
staff, is Hunt's chief pitching support. 
Lacrosse Goalie Needed 

There are only eight letter men back 
for lacrosse, 10 having been lost, eight by 

graduation. These included Milton Mulitz, 
defense, and Oscar Navares, attack, both 
all-Americas. However, Markland Kelly, 
all-State goalie and second all-America, 
left probably the biggest hole when he 
quit to go into Navy aviation. Jack Grier, 
another able goal tender, was among those 

Jack Mueller, Bill Graham, and Fred 
Widener, defense men, and Jordan Sexton, 
Chick Allen, Jack Garrett, Al Slesinger and 
Bill McGregor, attack men, are the letter 
men on hand. Carl Bachrach, reserve goalie, 
and Ashton Thumm, defense, are the other 
chief left-overs. 

Julius Bridges and Jim Forbes, goalies; 
Charles Keller, Bob Fetters and John Rabai, 
defense, and Milton VandenBerg and Ray 
Grelecki, attack, top the talent coming up 
from the 1940 yearlings. 

If an able goalie can be developed, it 
will be a tough job to take the title from 
the Terps, and Forbes appears able to fill 
the bill. 

Track Squad Formidable 

There are only five of eleven letter men 
back from the track team with the losses 
including such greats as Jim Kehoe, Alan j 
Miller and Mason Chronister, but the out 
look is for a well-balanced outfit that prob 
ably will match the dual meet record of 

Joe Murphy, Southern Conference 
sprint champion; Gene Ochsenreiter, quar 
ter-miler; Bob Condon, half miler; Tom 
Fields, Conference mile and 2-mile king, 
and Bill Tillcy, sprinter and broad jumper, 
are the "M" men available. Chester Ernst, 
sprinter; Elmer Rigby, who can run any 
thing from the 100 to 440; Vernon Miller. 
440; Bob Montgomery, 440 and 880; Ran- 
dall Cronin, 880, and Dick Shaffer, javelin 
and discus, arc others from last year who 
should figure prominently. 

Much strength should be added by soph 

oniores, who include Louis Chacos, sprint 

er; Tom Devlin, 440; Stanley Kihn, mile

Maryland Alumni JVetos 

Grid Squad Impresses 
In Sprins Practice ^^ 

Jack Faber, Al Woods and Al Hcagy, 

wlio brought the Maryland football squad 
to such a well-developed stage for the clos- 
ing games of the 1940 campaign, are work- 
ing hard and impressively with 43 willing 
aspirants in Spring drills. 

It is a rather pleasing-looking squad, one 
that contains much promise despite the loss 
of some star veterans and that the Frosh 
team tied one game and lost four last Fall. 
In fact, it is the work of some of the rook- 
ies that makes the Maryland coaches look 
forward to next September with a goodly 
degree of optimism. 

Should Get Better Start 
It should be a much different beginning 
next Fall than was made in 1940 when the 
three young mentors started from scratch 
and installed a system that was vastly 
changed over the preceding season. That 
the system and the tutoring were okay but 
needed time for development was demon- 
strated in the last three tilts when V. M. I. 
was greatly outgained, highly-favored Rut- 
i gers was rudely upset. 14-7, and Washing- 
I ton and Lee was tied. 

In fact, no eleven in this sector was 

playing smoother football at the finish, 

Ijeven the ones which had much superior 

assets and which were handled by mentors 

I'who carried the "big-time" label. So, with 

the benefit of that "building" year, the 

•} three Maryland grads appear in much bet- 

i ter position for the 1941 tests. 

Changed rules, particularly the one that 
allows the forward passing of the ball from 
[two yards back of the line, should prove a 
boon to Maryland's doublewing back plays. 
Two Shifts Are Made 
Two marked shifts have been made in 
hhe Spring drills. Don Shockey, fast 205- 
rj pounder, having been sent from the back- 
field to tackle. This move appears to be a 
ten-strike. Jack Gilmore, a back last year, 
[also is developing well as an end. 

Ends offer the main problem and all 

Hvill be new, as Luther Conrad, who was 

shifted from guard to wing last year, has 

returned to his old job, where he is an ace. 

Ml the other letter wingmen were lost. 

While it cannot be expected to be a 

whirlwind", the 1941 eleven should play 

-•nough football to please all reasonable fol- 



Former Maryland athlete, as he looked 
in 1923, who has been made manager of 
the immense and important new Washing- 
ton Airport at Gravelly Point, Va. 

Meade Becomes Coach 
Of Lehigh Stickmen 

Jim Meade, former football and lacrosse 
star for the Terps and now a halfback for 
the Washington Redskins, is coaching the 
Lehigh lacrosse team this year. Jim was all- 
America second defense for Maryland in 
193S and 1939 and should be a big help 
to the Lehigh team. He assisted in coach- 
ing the Maryland stick squad last year and 
was handling the stickmen while Jack 
Faber and Al Ileagy were with the grid- 
ders when he was offered the Lehigh job. 

Johnny Groves Soaring 
In Aviation Service 

Johnny i Hoot G 74, one <>f 

Maryland's best all-around athletes in Ins 
day, has been made managei ol th< new 
Washington Urporl .it Gravellj Point, Va 

Groves began work with Government 
aviation in 1926 m<l when appointed to 
his new |ol) was assistant chiel oi the Ci 
vilian Pilot Training Division oi tin Civil 
Aeronautics Administration, lie has been 
successively aeronautical observer, airport 
specialist and official of the private flying 
di\ ision. 

Before going with the CAA, Johnny 
served two years in the Marine Corps as 
lieutenant, lie is married anil has two 
children, lie resides in Fairfax, Va. 

Groves was an important cog in Mary 
land's famous 1923 eleven — probably the 
school's greatest. He kit Led the field goal 
that beat Penn. 3 to 0. and starred m the 
game in which Yale's Eastern champion- 
ship team was well outplayed but which 
the Terps lost, 14 16. 

A great difference in the Groves of 1923 
and in the Groves of today is that he now 
works all the time like iic used to play on 
Saturdays. Johnny didn't care much for 
the football practice grind but he sure 
could go to town when the games rolled 
around. He also was a letter man in bas- 
ket ball and baseball. 

Field Day To Provide 
Elaborate Program 

Although Field Day, May 3, is some 
distance off, plans already are pretty well 
set for the annual affair that is the high 
spot of the Spring season. As usual, school- 
boys will have their fling in a double track 
meet in which there will be 13 open in- 
terscholastic events and eight closed to 
county high schools of the State. 

There will be plenty of other big at 
tractions in which varsity teams will face 
Washington College in baseball. Virginia 
Poly in track, Princeton in lacrosse and 
George Washington in tennis. 

All of the track competition will be run 
concurrently and the lacrosse game will fur- 
nish the grand finale. 

•'Vfarch, 1941 

and 2 miles; Jack Gilmore, a better than 
6 foot high jumper; Luther Conrad. Lohr 
Dunlap and Reggy Vincent, in the shot 
and discus, and Melvin Leonbcrger, 

Maryland's weak spots arc the hurdles, 
javelin and pole vault, but the Terps will 
be tough to outrun on the flat and should 
get a fair share of points in the other field 

Tennis Left To Vets 

Tennis, which lost its first three ranking 
players — Al Ritzenberg, Nathan Askin 
and Jack Phillips, will have to bank on the 
five remaining letter men, as the 1940 
frosh provided little. Phil Burkom, Doyle 
Royal, Harry Baughcr, Jim Burnsidc, and 
Jim Hardey are the "M" men who will 
have to carrv the burden. 

Fields Tops Trackmen 
In Indoor Affairs 

Tommy Fields, senior ace, set the pace 
for the Maryland trackmen in indoor meets. 

Fields won both the Southern Confer- 
ence mile and 2-mile titles, took the Rec- 
tor's 1,000 in the C. U. games in "Washing- 
ton, the Governor's Mile and the Collegi- 
ate Mile in the Maryland-Fifth Regiment 
meet in Baltimore as his chief feats, and 
also ran on several winning relays. 

Lou Chacos, sprinter; Bob Montgomery, 
Tom Devlin, Randall Cronin, Bill Tillcy, 
Vernon Miller, Bob Condon and Chester 
Ernst, all runners, also figured prominently. 

Miller's best feat was winning the D. C. 
A. U. 300-yard crown in the Washington 
A. A. games, while he shared in relay wins 
with Montgomery, Cronin, Condon, Dev- 
lin and Fields. 

Freshmen Stirling Kehoc, half-miler, and 
Dick Alexander, high jumper, also gath- 
ered honors in the A. A. U. division of the 
various meets. Alexander won both in 
Baltimore and at the Southern Conference 
games. Kehoe's best were a couple of sec 
ond places but he's a comer. Both he and 
Alexander should shine for the yearlings 


Lieut. Allan Miller, '39, and Miss Vil 
ginia Mercer, '42, have announced their 
n [agement. Lieutenant Miller is now sta- 
tioned at Quantico and will be able to

Meet Artistic Success 
Despite Snowstorm 

Hit b\ the Winter's worst snow storm, 
the Maryland Fifth Regiment indoor meet 
in Baltimore on March 7th was .1 financial 
failure but an artistic success. There really 
were more people present than reasonably 
could have been expected under the al- 
most impossible traveling conditions, 

Only one celebrity missed the affair on 
1 unit of conditions, I'icd Wolcott, the 
world's top hurdler from Rice Institute, 
being grounded 111 the Midwest while 
making the trip by plane 

Earl Meadows and Diek Ganslen, the 
■latter the world record holder, spiced the 
pole vault; Al Blo/is oi Georgetown, ace 
of shot putters, and Don I, ash, foe Mc 
Cluskcy, Charley Bcctham and other star 
runners were on hand. 

Jim Kehoe. who shone for Man land 1111 
til he was graduated last June, whipped 
Beetham and others in the Oriole 660, the 
top running event of the games. 

In all, eight meet records were broken 
and the talent and program was such that 
a big crowd doubtless would have attend- 
ed had weather conditions been anywhere 
near normal.

few remarks about 

At this season 
most Alumni are in- 
terested in outdoor 
athletics at the Uni- 
versity, and will no 
doubt be particu- 
larly interested in 
Field Day, to be 
held at College Park on May ->rd. This is an 
annual event and usually draws a large 
crowd from all parts of our State. 

The events which usually cause the 
most excitement will be thirteen open in- 
terscholastic events for high school boys. 
There will also be eight closed track events 
to county high school students of the State. 
In addition to the above there will be 
several other attractions in which the Uni- 
versity varsity teams will face Washington 
College in baseball; Virginia Poly in track; 
Princeton in lacrosse, and George W ash 
ington in tennis. 

Other occasions on the schedule which 
will be in the limelight are Military Day 
and Mav Day. The former will have extra

As a feature of their annual sales meet 
ing, some 200 officers, executives, and 
salesmen of the Permutit Company. New- 
York, manufacturers of water conditioning 
equipment, gathered in a testimonial din- 
ner at the Hotel Astor on January 3, 1941, 
to honor Norman E. Briec. '08. chief en- 
gineer in charge of design, production, me- 
chanical research, and construction for the 
company, for having completed 2 s years 
of service. 

W. S'. Spencer Robertson, President of 
the company, in his laudatory address, eu- 
logized Mr. Brice for his many mechanical 
improvements to plant and product which 
have contributed to the rapid growth of 
the industry that was young a quarter of a 
century ago. It is of interest that Permutit 
equipment conditions the water for the 
University of Mankind power plant at 
College Park. 

After receiving his Bachelor's Degree at 
College Park, Mr. Brice matriculated at 
Cornell University, Ithaca. N. Y., and was 
awarded his professional degree of M.L. 
in 1911.

Directing Pharmacy Centennial 

Otto W. Mil ni.ii WJSE 
General Chairman 

Fellow Alumni and Friends — 

We of the School of Pharmacy arc this 
year celebrating the one hundredth anni- 
versary of its founding. The arrival at this 
point in its life is in itself an enviable ac- 
complishment, surpassed only by two sim- 
ilar institutions in this vast nation. 

Those men who laid the foundation for 
our present College must surely have been 
gifted with keen foresight, for our Insti- 
tution has graduated its share of able and 
competent pharmacists. Of these gradu- 
ates, many have advanced to become lead- 
ers in one or more of the several branches 
of pharmacy, including ethical retailers, 
wholesalers, manufacturers, research men 
and instructors. The State has always had 
an ample supply of talented pharmacists 
and has frequently shared them with other 
sections of the country. 

As all drug activity in the State revolves 
around our School of Pharmacy, and phar- 
macy in Maryland enjoys such a whole- 
sonic reputation, we Alumni can be justly 
proud. The success enjoyed by our School 
reflects the ability and efforts of its corps 
of instructors and their directors. 

To these men and women, 1 extend my 
sincere best wishes.

Maryland's Field Day Program, May 3, Filled 
With Attractions For 30th Anniversary 

Maryland will celebrate the thirtieth an- 
niversary of the starting of Field Day .it 
College Park on May 3 with one of the 
finest programs it ever has staged. It will 
he only the 24th meet, as there were lapses 
in several years, owing to war and other 
adverse conditions. 

\s usual, the day is primarily for school 
boys, with a track card that embraces 13 
open events and seven individual events 
and two relays closed to county high 
schools of the State, but the list of varsity 
niitcsts is unusually attractive. 

There also is a special relay race for the 
Maryland [nterscholastic Association that 
is one of the highlights of the schoolboy 

Program Is Luring 

Here is the complete program: 

12:U0 Noon — [nterscholastic track meet, 

with varsity test between 

Maryland and Virginia Poly 

to be run off concurrently. 

1:IKI p. in. — Tennis. Maryland vs. George 

2:30 p.m.— Baseball, Maryland vs. \\ ash 

ington College. 
4:110 p.m. — Lacrosse, Maryland vs. Prince- 
Allegany High School of Cumberland 
took the county team trophy last year with 
Scton Hall capturing the open honors. Ha- 
gerstown and Bel Air were second and 
third, respectively, in the county scoring 
in which thirteen schools shared in the 
point getting. 

Records Are Smashed 
Sam Leonard of St. Michael's leaped 5 
feet 1 1 inches in the high jump to break 
the only county record but two were 
smashed in the open division. Joe Good 
man of Mount St. Joe of Baltimore hurled 
the discus 1 3S feet 4 inches and Pari Audct 
of Seton Hall tossed the 12-pound shot 
57 feet 4 inches. 

Tcrp varsity teams are hopeful they 
will be as successful as a year ago. Figuring 
in the home program, the trackmen beat 


Virginia, 69Vi to 56 1 ;; the ball team 
routed William and Mary, 11 to 0. and 
the netmen trimmed George Washington, 
9 to 0. 'I'he stickmen were at Princeton, 
where they won. 9 to 4. 

Princeton, however, probably has its 
finest lacrosse team this season and will be 
the first big barrier faced by Maryland's 
collegiate champions. Two notable Prince- 
ton feats this year were the holding of 
Mount Washington to a 6 to 7 score and 
trimming Baltimore A. C. 12 to 7. The 
Tigers actually outplayed Mount Washing 
ton, perennial national club titleholders. 
Terps Facing Tasks 

Only the Maryland tennis team will be 
a hot favorite on May 3, as the trackstcrs. 
ball team and lacrosse team will be no bet 
tcr than 50-50 choices at the best. 

The Tcrp track team had won two of 
three dual meets and was preparing for 
the Penn Relay Carnival when this was 
written, the stickmen were readying to 
oppose Army at West Point after having 
taken their first five games, and the busy 
ball team was striving to catch up on a big 
deficit compiled in its early games. 

None of these three squads has shown 
to be up to their 1940 power, the nine 
lacking the pitching and hitting strength 
of a year ago. the trackstcrs not being up 
to the standard in the running events and 
weak, as usual, in the field tests, and the 
defense is proving a big worry to the la- 
crosse mentors. 

Three Successive Tests 

Starting with Princeton and then fol- 
lowing with Mount Washington and Johns 
Hopkins. Maryland will be meeting its 
three strongest lacrosse rivals in successive 
weeks. All arc stronger than a year ago, 
particularly Hopkins which the critics al- 
ready arc conceding the 1941 national 
collegiate title. 

Mount Washington has filled its ranks 
with former college stars, with onetime 
Maryland stick aces playing leading roles. 
With the club team arc such ex Terps as 

Terps Put Four Teams 
In Penn Carnival 

Maryland has entered four events in the 
Penn Relay Carnival at Philadelphia oi 
April 2 5 and 26 — the half-mile, mile 
sprint medley and two miles — but w ill 
stress two of them. 

Coach Coleman Hcadlcy figures his best 
chances arc in the sprint medley and mile 
but, of course, will prepare for the other 
two the best he can and will not scratch 
in any of them unless the tunc between 
them is too close. 

Here are entries: 
Half Mile — Joe Murphy. Lou Chacos, John 

VI. mis. Bob Montgomery and Vernon 

Miller and Pom Devlin. 
Mile — Murphy, Chacos. Gene Ochsen 

reiter, Devlin, Miller and Pom Fields. 
Sprint Medley — Ochsenreiter, Murphy. 

Chacos, Fields, Montgomery. Miller 
Two Miles — Ochsenreiter. Pields. Bob 

Condon, Randall Cronin, Devlin and 


Three of these runners — Fields, Och- 
senreiter and Condon — figured in Man 
land's triple triumph last year. Fields ran 
in all three last year, the two miles, sprint 
medley and four miles. Ochsenreiter was on 
the two-mile team and Condon on the 
four-mile quartet. 

Jim Kchoe and Mason Chronistcr, who 
ran in all three, and Alan Miller, who ran 
m two, were lost by graduation and then 
shoes haven't been filled. 

Fred Stiebcr. Bob Niclson. Fred Hewitt, 
Bill Bond. Bill Cole, Bruce Campbell, Bill 
Groff and Gary Todd, almost a great team 
in themselves. Buck 'Turner. Princeton's 
1940 all-America goalie, and others also 
have been added. 

Hopkins Is Powerful 

Hopkins has by far the most formidable 
collection of lacrosse players any one squad 
has boasted in many years and in winning 
its first five games did not have a point 
scored against it. 

Virginia Poly will present a real track ace

aid in erecting .1 suitable building. In 1875, 
a committee of the College petitioned the 
City Council of Baltimore to grant the 
College the school building on Asquith 
Street, known .is Female Grammer School 
No J. rhis request was denied, but the 
building was purchased from the City of 
Baltimore early in 1876. This building was 
remodeled and used until the latter part 
of the session of 1886-87, when a three 
story modem structure was erected on the 
same site. The latter building was occupied 
until the Man land College of Pharmacy 
was amalgamated with the group of pro- 
fessional schools in Baltimore then known 
as the University of Maryland. It became 
a department of the State University when 
the old University of Maryland was merged 
with the Mankind State College 111 1920. 

Noteworthy Accomplishments 
From the very beginning, the School has 
kept pace and more often has been in the 
vanguard of the advancement of pharma- 
ceutical education. The professors and gracl 
nates made main noteworthy contributions 
to the advancement of pharmacy and 
many "first in pharmacy" arc recorded 
to its credit through the work of these 
men of extraordinary ability and charac- 
ter. The first separate professorship in the 
theory and practice of pharmacy in the 
United States was established at the Man 
land College of Pharmacy on April 24, 
1844, and Dr. David Stewart was elected 
the professor in charge. The first obligatory 
course in analytical chemistry given in a 
sc hool of pharmacy in this country was 
made a part of the curriculum on March 
23, 1872. and William Simon, Ph.D.. was 
made director of the laboratory. It was 
Alphcus P. Sharp, one of the first gradu- 
ates of the Maryland College of Phar- 
macy (June 19, 1842) and co-founder of 
the manufacturing firm of Sharp and 
Dohme, who presented the first scientific 
paper read before the sessions of the 
American Pharmaceutical Association, the 
subject being "On the strength of Com- 
mercial Muriatic and Nitric Acids and 
Alcohols" (morning session of the Fourth 

Annual Meeting, September 13, 1855, 
New York City). The studies on percola- 
tion reported by Professor Israel J. Gra- 
hame in 1858 and the work of William 
Silver Thompson, one of the first three 
graduates of the school, on the manufac- 
ture and analysis of various types of phai 
maccutical preparations, reported in the 
years 1857 to I860, while not strictly 
"firsts," stand out as being of pioneer 
character and exceptionally meritorious. 

I he work done by Dr. Charles Caspari, Jr.. 
in 1896 on the adaptation of volumetric 
methods of analysis to the assay of the 
official alkaloidal drugs, is still considered 

a classic. 1 he School was one of the first 
to establish a separate course 111 prescrip- 
tion compounding, consisting of both lec- 
tures and laboratory work. Dr. Henry P. 
I [3 nson was elected the first professor of 
dispensing pharmacy. The first laboratory 
in a school of pharmacy for instruction 111 
bio-chemical assavs was established at Mary- 
land in 1930 through the generosity of 
the late Capt. Isaac E. Emerson. Profes- 
sor Marvin R. Thompson was the first 

Pharmaceutical Education 

\t the call of the Maryland College of 
Pharmacy, the first convention of repre- 
sentatives of the colleges of pharmacy of 
this country was held in Baltimore on Sep- 
tember 13, 18~0. for the purpose of for- 
mulating uniform standards for the gradu- 
ation of pharmacy students. Again in 1900, 
it was Dr. Henry P. Hynson, Secretary of 
the Mankind College of Pharmacy, who 
issued the call for the conference of phar 
maccutical educators which finally re- 
sulted in the formation of the American 
Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, an 
organization comparable to the American 
Association of Medical Colleges in its par- 
ticular sphere of influence. That the call 
for advancement in pharmaceutical edu- 
cation is still resounding from Maryland 
is evidenced by the fact that the American 
Council on Pharmaceutical Education, an 
agency created in 1932 for the accreditation 
of colleges of Pharmacy, is largely the re- 
sult of efforts put forth by members of 
the present faculty of the School. 
Influence Of School On Health Measures 

The School has also had its influence 
upon the health measures which have been 
enacted in Maryland to govern the prac- 
tice of pharmacy and to control the man- 
ufacture, sale and distribution of drugs 
and medicines. Subsequent to 1841, and 
prior to 1902, the year in which the first 
Statewide pharmacy practice law was 
passed, all pharmaceutical laws enacted by 
the Legislature of this State were initiated 
and fostered by the School of Pharmacy. 
It was a former dean of the School, Dr. 
Charles Caspari, Jr., who was the first 
pharmacist to be appointed a member of 
the State Board of Health, and it was he 
who organized the Food and Drug Bureau 
of the State Department of Health.

on Field Day in "Mac" McMullin. He 

took four firsts in a recent meet — the 
100, 220 and both high and low hurdles — 
and his times in all were exceptionally fast. 
His battles with Joe Murphy, Maryland 
Southern Conference champion in the two 
dashes should be thrillers.

(Continued from page 7) 
these fifty years I have given little thought 
to the passing of time — have lived a reg- 
ular norma/ life, found my niche and kept 
busy with the features of it that I enjoyed. 
Out Semicentennial Celebration, 1891, 
was an accepted success. Philadelphia ga\c 
us the largest delegation — Remington, 
Maisch, Sadtlcr and Kraemcr; New York 
with her Bedford and Rushy was a worthy 
second, while most colleges of pharmacy 
remembered us. I regret to say that novo 
of the gentlemen mentioned above arc nou- 
Jiving. It was a success because of wise 
planning and united effort, and if these 
forces continue operative, and I feel sure 
they will, our nearby Centennial will he .1 
happy repetition of what has gone before. 
Let us hope, plan and strive to that end.

Cover Picture 

This etching is of the new Memorial 
Gateway, sponsored by the diss of 1910, 
located at the Rossborough Inn. It is .ill 
a part of the new campus layout which 
eliminated the old Riggs Road running 
through the campus and this Catcwav will 
be the beginning of a path which will run 
through the entire eanipus. It had been 
originally planned to have the dedication 
of tliis Gateway on Alumni Hay but due 
to unavoidable circumstances which has 
prevented its completion the dedication 
will be postponed until Homecoming Day 
this fall. President of the class of 1910 is 
the Honorable William 1'. Cole, Marj 
land's Representative in Congress, and the 
Secretary is Col. (). II. Saunders. Com 
mander of the Twelfth Infantry. (). R. 
Carrington, '28, is author of the picture. 

Fellow Alumni: 

The Alumni Board and President of youi 
Association is inviting President Byrd, the 
Board of Regents. Faculty, Miiiiini, Senior 
Class and their friends to a reception to 
be given at the Rossborough Inn on 
Alumni Day, June 6, between the hours of 
4 and 5:30 P.M. 

Last year, when the Rossborough Inn 
was formally opened on Alumni Day, the 
University gave an opening reception in 
honor of Alumni and friends. This has 
been regarded as a splendid gesture to our 
Alumni and established a precedent which 
the Alumni Association will endeavor to 
perpetuate by making the Alumni Recep 
tion in the Rossborough Inn on Alumni 
Day an annual affair. 

A full schedule of events for Alumni 
Day are given elsewhere in the \iv\s. 
However. I should like to call your atten 
tion to the Alumni Luncheon at noon, 
which will be followed by the Annual 
Miiinni Meeting. \t this tune a special 
presentation will be made to commemo- 
rate the late Willard M. Ilillegeist. '12.

Twenty -Five -Year Reunions for Class of 1916 

CLASS OF 1916 

Class Reunions For Alu 




1891 — Fifty- Year Class 

The leading class in the Reunion parade 
will be the class of 1891. It was fifty years 
ago when this group of four boys received 
their diplomas; now more than eight hun- 
dred will receive their coveted sheepskins 
this June. Fletcher P. Veitch, former pres- 
ident of the Alumni Association and a res- 
ident of College Park, will perform the 
class honors and receive the class flag. 
1896 — Forty-Five- Year Class 

Five years later, in 1896, the size of the 
class had more than doubled. There were 
ten in the class of 1896, which included 
Mahlori N. Haines, the first cadet to win 
the individual competition drill held at 
College Park; W. T. S. Rollins, one of 
Maryland's former gridiron stars, and Com- 
mander T. G. Crapster, of the United 
States Coast Guard. 

1901 — Forty- Year Class 

Henry C. Whiteford, former president 
of the Alumni Association, plans on being 
present and hopes the other surviving mem- 
ber, J. T. Harding, of Atlanta, Ga.. will be 
here, too. They will represent the class of 

1906 — Thirty-Five- Year Class 

The classes arc now beginning to grow 
and in the class of 1906 there were thir- 
teen boys. A. Moulton McNutt, president 
of the Philadelphia Alumni Group; L. 
Ferdinand Zerkel, of I. may. Va„ and Rev. 
I. etcher T. Showell arc some of the lumi- 

1911 — Thirty-Year Class 

In the class of 1911 we have one of the 

most enthusiastic class leaders and alum- 
nus, Col. L. M. Silvester, of the armored 
forces of the United States Army, now at 
Fort Knox, Tenn. He will not be here in 
person, but you can place a 100-to-l bet 
that his spirit will be at College Park. A. 
Dixon Garey and J. W. Kinghorne will 
carry on the class reunion. 

Twenty-Five- Year Reunion 

Here we have the spirit of 1916 which, 
twenty-five years ago, had a similar situa- 
tion to face as the boys of this year's class, 
a World War. Many of this class answered 
Uncle Sam's call and served overseas. Les 
Bopst, campus member, has written all 
classmates about the Reunion and feels 
that a real return is assured. 

1921 — Twenty- Year Class 

C. Walter Cole, class president of 1921, 
has issued a call. This is the second class 
from College Park to receive the University 
of Maryland diploma. It was an active class 
and had many student leaders in its ranks. 
Today many arc listed among eminent 
Alumni. This class should show the way 
to the classes who arc to follow in having 

1926 — Fifteen-Year Class 

On the campus there are several mem- 
bers of the class of 1926 — Jack Faber, 
football and lacrosse coach, as well as pro- 
fessor of bacteriology; Zukc Supplcc, chem- 
ist; George Fogg, reference librarian, and 
E. A. Walker, professor of plant pathology. 

The class valedictorian, Tom Brown, is 
expected to be present with his oratory.

Dr. Skinner, '95, Resigns 
As Regent Of University 

As the News was going to press word 
was received that Dr. W. W. Skinner, '95. 
had tendered his resignation as a membei 
of the Board of Regents to Governor Her 
bert R. O'Conor, '20. Dr. Skinner hac 
been a member of the Board for twenty 
five years and had served as its chairman 
since 1934. 

He was a graduate in Chemistry and al 
present is Chief of the Bureau of Chem 
istry for the Department of Agriculture. 

The loss of his council and services will 
be more than anyone can conjecture. He 
has been a most loyal and faithful workei 
in behalf of his Alma Mater. Has always 
taken an active part in the affairs of the 
Alumni Association. He has the singula! 
distinction of having played quarterback on 
the first football team to make collegiate 
(Continued on Page 7) 

Mr. Turner Appointed 
Member Board Of Regents 

At the termination of the school yeai 
the term of service of Mr. Harry H. Nuttle, 
'05, will end as a member of the Board ol 
Regents. Mr. Nuttle, a prominent citizen 
and business man on the Eastern Shore 
has been a member of the Board since 
1932. The term of service for a membei 
is nine years. 

Mr. P. C. Turner, president of the State 
Farm Bureau, will succeed Mr. Nuttle. 

Maryland Alumni Newt 

Many Alumni Returning 

For 49th Annual Alumni Reunion 

Soon millions of young men and young 
women will receive their diplomas from 
college and join the ranks of alumni. They 
are saying, "I will never miss coming back 
for June Week if I can help it." Now 
the time is near for all alumni to fulfill 
that pledge. The Annual Alumni Reunion, 
Friday, June 6, is the day to renew that 
old pledge and see your classmates again. 
Alumni Day begins at 10 A. M., and 
you enter the campus by the new Gateway 
at the Rossborough Inn. The class of 1910 
is sponsoring this Gateway, which will be 
dedicated next fall at Homecoming. 

It might be well for alumni to park 
their cars at the Ritchie Coliseum and 
cross the boulevard to the Inn. Near the 
Inn a registration booth will give all nec- 
essary information about the day. The 
morning will be for sightseeing and com- 
mittee meetings. At noon, the class of 

I 1891, the eminent class of the day, will 
raise their flag. Following this the Annual 
Alumni Luncheon will be held in the Uni- 

. versify Dining Hall, after which the An- 
nual Meeting of the Association will be 
held and election of officers will be made 
for the ensuing year. 

At the annual luncheon a portrait in oil 

1 of the late Willard M. Hillegeist, '12, will 

' be presented to the University by James 
Stevens, '19, and James Swarty, '19, on 
behalf of the Alumni of the University. 
College Meetings 
In the afternoon at 2:30 each Dean will 

< be in his office to greet all grads of his 
college and also to conduct a meeting of 
the Board of Representatives for their re- 

j spective colleges. Members of the College 
Board will be selected at this time and 
representatives on General Alumni Exec- 

■ :■ utive Board appointed. 

At 3:30 P. M. class reunions will be held 
at designated places. This is the key to 

; successful Alumni Reunions. Special re- 
unions are being held by the five-year classes 
beginning with 1891, then 1896, 1901, 
1906, 1911, 1916 (twenty-year classes), 
1921, 1926, 1931, 1936, and the infants, 

Many alumni have so favorably com- 
1 mented on the opening reception held at 

the Rossborough Inn List year on \luiiiin 
Day that the Alumni Board has planned 

to hold the reception again tins yeai from 
4 to 5:30 P. M.. with the hope that it will 
become a traditional part of Alumni Day. 
This reception will be given by the alumni 
for the President of our University, the 
Board of Regents, Faculty, and the Senior 
Class and their friends. The Inn was orig- 
inally the center of social life in colonial 
days and again it should foster and perpetu- 
ate that spirit. 

At 6 P.M. the Alumni, Faculty, Senior 
Class Dinner will be held in the Univer- 
sity Dining Hall. Dress is optional. Speech- 
es have been ruled out and a real fellow- 
ship get-together is on the menu. This is 
the first time the Senior Class has partici- 
pated in this dinner and we are looking for- 
ward to a real evening. 

Another outstanding event will be the 
Class Day exercises held under the au- 
spices of the Senior Class with alumni co- 
operating. This event will be held out on 
the campus immediately following the din- 
ner. Special entertainment has been ar- 
ranged which will include talented artists, 
honors to Seniors and a Senior Class play. 
The class of 1941 is endeavoring to revive 
the old Class Day spirit, along with the 
alumni efforts for a big day. This is a good 
way to start real spirit. 

Commencement Ball 

One of the more traditional functions is 
the Commencement Ball which was in- 
augurated seventy-nine years ago. The re- 
turning old grads who attend the dinner, 
Faculty, members of the Senior Class and 
various student leaders are invited to at- 
tend the Ball, which will begin at 9:30 
P. M. in the University Gymnasium. 

For the ladies, who come with alumni 
husbands, we have made special plans for 
you. The Rossborough Inn is interesting, 
also the new Home Economics Building 
with its new Man land lounge room as well 
as the women's dormitories. At all places 
there are conveniences for your comfort. 
Any ladies desiring a room for changing 
clothes can obtain accommodations in 
either of the women's dormitories. 

For husbands of alumnae, just fall into

Defense Activities Of The College Of Engineering 

In addition to normal teaching and re- 

rch under way in the College of Engi- 
neering, a number of defense activities have 
been undertaken since the beginning of 
the present national emergency. Following 
is a brief description of some of these 

Engineering Defense Training 
In accordance with an Act of Congress 
the United States Office of Education was 
authorized late last fall to contract with 
accredited engineering colleges for special- 
ized engineering training through courses 
of college grade in fields essential to the na- 
tional defense. Dean S. S. Steinberg of the 
College of Engineering was appointed by 
Dr. J. W. Studebakcr. United States Com- 
missioner of Education, Regional Adviser 
for Engineering Defense Training for Re- 
gion 7, comprising Maryland and the Dis- 
trict of Columbia, and including the fol- 
lowing five universities: Maryland, Johns 
Hopkins, George Washington, Catholic, 
and Howard. 

The Engineering Defense Training pro- 
gram at the University was inaugurated 
after conferences with representatives of 
defense industries in Maryland and the 
District of Columbia and with the Army 
and the Navy. It was found that in this 
area the greatest need for trained person- 
nel was in design, managerial, and super- 
visory positions in the aircraft and radio 
industries. Accordingly, arrangements were 
made by the College of Engineering to of- 
fer the following courses: Aeronautical 
Drafting, Aircraft Design, Aircraft Tool 
Engineering, Aircraft Inspection, Radio 
Engineering, Radio Testing and Inspection, 
Engineering Drawing, and Metallurgy and 
Testing of Iron and Steel. 

The courses arc being offered primarily 
at night and about one thousand students 
are enrolled with the University at College 
I'ark. Baltimore, Ilagerstown, and Wash- 
ington, D. C. The men arc being trained 
for the Glenn E. Martin Company in Bal- 
timore, the Engineering and Research Cor- 
poration in Riverdalc, the Air-Track Cor- 
poration in College Park, the Kairchild 
Aircraft Corporation in Ilagerstown, the 
i idio division of the Wcstinghousc Com- 
pany as well as the Bcndix Radio Corpo- 

ration in Baltimore, the Ordnance Depart- 
ment of the Army and the Naval Gun 
Factory in Washington. 

Civil Aeronautics Flight Training 

With the cooperation of the Civil Aero- 
nautics Authority the College of Engi- 
neering has been training civilian pilots in 
both the preliminary and secondary courses. 
This work is under the direction of Dr. J. 
E. Younger, chairman of the Department 
of Mechanical Engineering. In the prelim-

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

By W. H. ("Bill") HOTTEL: 

Maryland Spring Sports Are Below Par 
But Generally On Right Side Of Ledger 

Maryland athletic squads were putting 
on the finishing touches to a busy spring 
campaign when this was written, with the 
certainty that all of the varsity teams 
would finish on the right side of the ledger, 
except the ball team. 

All of the freshman combinations, too, 
except the diamonders, were well on the 
credit side, with the track team giving 
Maryland its first undefeated yearling team 
in this pastime. 

Its major victory was scored over the 
Navy Plebes, who were beaten for the first 
time in five years in this pastime. 

Maryland had three more varsity ball 
games on the card as this was penned but 
had lost 15 of 22 contests played so had 
no chance of making up lost ground. This, 
the worst season in many years, mainly was 
attributable to lack of good pitching. How- 
ever, the squad was not up to par in field- 
ing, either, although the Terps hit about 
up to standard. It just took too many runs 
to win games. 

Lacrosse Title Is Lost 

The Terps, riddled by graduations and 
other losses before the season started, and 
injuries to stars after it began, also lost the 
national intercollegiate lacrosse champion- 
ship when the ten bowed to Johns Hopkins 
in Baltimore, 3-10, on May 17. 

The squad went into the game injury- 
riddled but was up against one of the finest 
Hopkins teams in many seasons and doubt- 
less would have lost had it been able to 
muster its full strength. Hopkins had 
great balance in addition to having some 
outstanding individuals. 

A track team, which also had lost some 
of the greatest runners ever to wear a 
spiked shoe, lived fully up to expectations 
by winning 4 of 7 dual meets and finishing 
third in the Southern Conference outdoor 
title meet, while the tennis team, with 10 
wins and two losses and one match to go, 

upheld its end in grand style. 

Freshmen Do All Right 

Freshmen in track, baseball, tennis and 
lacrosse had won 19 of 25 tests at this sum- 
ming up, with all having finished their 
schedules except Rosy Pollock's young dia- 
monders. Like the varsity, the yearlings 
also were shy on pitching with the chances 
against them taking more than one of their 
remaining three tilts. 

The main job that was left was the com- 
pleting of the averages and determining 
just how many athletes figured in sufficient 
contests to get their letters. There is cer- 
tain to be fewer "M's" in lacrosse than 
in any other big sport, as Jack Faber and 
Al Heagy had to rely on just 12 men to 
carry the squad along, and some of those 
were not up to the usual caliber. 

Athletes' Status Uncertain 
With the defense program uppermost 
in the mind of everyone, there are many 
ifs between now and next season — even 
to football in the fall — but if Maryland 
doesn't lose too many of its athletes, es- 
pecially outstanding freshmen, 1941-42 
should bring better things generally. 

A complete review of sports for the year 
will be given in the next issue of the News 
when each team will be accorded more de- 
tailed attention. 


Fritz Maisel, Maryland outfielder and 
soccer star from Catonsville, has been 
elected to Phi Kappa Phi, national hon- 
orary fraternity. 


Bob Fetters, Maryland sophomore from 
Baltimore, who won his letter in basket 
ball the past season and who played 
regularly at cover point for the lacrosse 
team, never took part in either sport in 
high school. He attended Baltimore Poly. 


Charley Woodward, letter man pitche 
of the Maryland nine last year, who wen 
to the law school in Baltimore last fal 
after three years at College Park, stuck bj 
the 1941 squad. He commuted from Bal 
timore by auto. Charley is a brother o 
Art Woodward, husky Terp junior hurlei 
but is nearly 30 pounds lighter at 156. 


Every racketer on the Maryland, tean 
was happy this season. There were onl 
eight on the squad and every netmai 
played in everyone of the matches. 


Landis Hill, a little attack man fron 
W T cstem High of Washington, who cam 
to Maryland without lacrosse experience 
was the only stickman from outside of th 
State to figure in the Terps' games. H 
showed exceptional improvement and w.i 
an able reserve. 


Outfielder Danny Boothe from Roosi 
vclt High in Washington was the bes 
looking soph player on the Mankind ba 
team. Boothe, who is 6 feet 3 inche 
weighs 178 pounds, is also an ace basket* 
and football end but hasn't found time fc 
these sports because he is an engineerin 
student who works to help pay for h 


Jim Mead, reserve Maryland pitcher, 
the son of the United States Senator froi 
New York. 


Mcarl DuVall, Maryland first sacker an 
hardest hitter on the team, worked for h 
third letter this season. He already had h 
"M" in basket ball and football. 


Maryland Alumni Ncu 

Herb Gunther, Maryland's rookie cat) h 
er, is a glutton for work. He went into 
Spring football practice right after winning 
the Southern Conference light-heavy box- 
ing crown and took only a short breathing 
spell before hopping to the diamond. He 
didn't have any real rest between the reg- 
ular grid season and the ring campaign. 


Maryland's lacrosse team was the lightest 
the laps have put on the field in years. 
Bill Graham, defense man, who scales 
182, was the only stickman in the 180- 
pound class. 

Air Corps — Robert Waters, '40, has en- 
listed in the United States Army Air Corps 
and has been sent to Puerto Rico. Waters 
took the C. A. A. flying course here at the 
University. Bob hails from Princess Anne,

iiame Recreational Director of Athletics at

Mr. Shaw said when he made the ap- 
>ointment that "It was with considerable 
•ride, since the appointee's qualifications 
nade securing his services very desirable." 
The new director will be charged with 
•eveloping as well as administering the 
xreational facilities of the two areas.

Class Reunions 

Tom said in his address, "June and Com- 
mencement Week always bring back mem- 
ories of the classes which preceded us. 
This year, as seniors, there is a satisfying 
sense of accomplishment, . not unmixed 
with sadness at the thought of parting. 
With thoughts of the future before us we 
realize our responsibility to our Alma 

Stew Whalcy, Louise Richardson, Tom 
Kelley, Ham Whitcford, Harold Remsberg, 
and many others back Tom in what he 
said. The next best indication is to be on 
hand Friday, June 6, to give re-emphasis 
to the class spirit.

1936 — Five- Year Class 

Here they arc. up to their first five \ car 
Reunion, and how they have scattered, 

sonic as far away as China, many in the 

service of Uncle Sam, and then others 
have not strayed far. Hcrbie Brill, class 
president, will lead the return of his class- 
mates of 1936. His able assistants — Betty 
Quirk, Selby Frank and Sam Leishear, fel- 
low class officers, expect to be here. Lou

again . 

Class Reunions make the day. 

From Our President 

former Director of Admissions of our Alma 
Mater. Immediately following the Alumni 
Meeting there will be class reunions of 
the five-year classes. Special class reunion 
of those graduating fifty and twenty-five 
years ago will be of special interest at our 
luncheon. It will be of much interest to 
meet and to know those who graduated 
fifty years ago. I personally will be delighted 
to meet again all of those graduated in 
1916 or twenty-five years ago. 

As next year will be the fiftieth annivcr 
sary of our Alumni Association. I am rec- 
ommending to the Alumni Board a cele- 
bration of this occasion by fostering a 
grand reunion of all classes on Alumni 
Day in June, 1942. I hope this suggestion 
will meet with the approval of our Alumni 
and that you will begin now to make plans
